Customer: hey my name is ***** ***** Shaw, I've been experiencing some problems with my 2005 e320
. Basically as I was driving home in some heavy rain and got a drop of water on my shoulder I looked up to notice my sun visor had gone up(I know it was down) when I tried to pull it down it didn't work my over head control panel seems to have lost power. when I open the doors at night the lights do not come on at all and I cannot manually click on the front overhead lights but I can the back ones. About 4 days goes by and then my radio went out like the nav/radio screen will turn on and say Mercedes benz with the logo but will shut off after a moment. After reading about fuses in the trunk I decided to check the trunk and around the battery
, there was water around the battery in the right corner not much a very small puddle but the wires on the right side were wet. I quickly dried it. Few sunny days goes by and I went out to start my car in the morning and got a message saying " low battery convey. some functions may be temporarily unavailable " (trunk was dry no rain for few days) so I got a friend to come give me a jump and my car started right up my radio and nav screen came back on allowing me to listen to the radio again but my over head control panel still has no power ( cant use sunroof
/visor or turn on overhead lights) ive read that's possibly the f9 fuse in the trunk but my ground lighting is still out too like when I open the doors at night also when driving at night the rear dome no longer illuminates either but I can click on the lights manually. after a week the radio went out again I went to autozone and got my battery alternator
and started checked and he said they were all fine. Furthermore this morning I went out to my car and I thought my car keys battery was dead because I could not unlock my car so I went and got a new battery for the keys, no results and noticed a read light blink when I clicked lock or unlock so I manually opened the trunk and got a jump. after a minute or so I tried to start it and could not after 20 minutes of leaving the car jumper cables hooked up it finally started and my radio came back on
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I need to fix my ocp so that my sunroof works and need to know if the water completely fried sll those wires or is the battery drain
